Bloom Legal Video Blog Vol. 7: No Refusal DWI Periods
Posted on Aug 1, 2011 in Courts, DUI/DWI, Local Issues, NOPD
Welcome back to the Bloom Legal Video Blog!
For our seventh installment Attorney Seth Bloom, of Bloom Legal explains the relatively new law enforcement tactic of No Refusal DWI Weekends.
During these specific periods, law enforcement officials coordinate with local judges and district attorneys to allow police officers to receive on-the-spot search warrants allowing them to collect blood and other chemical samples from suspected drunk drivers. This practice is relatively extreme in that it does not allow any recourse to the individuals in question and is being credited with an increase in drunk driving arrests in New Orleans and the surrounding areas.
If you have been arrested for DWI during a No Refusal Weekend or at any other time, call Bloom Legal today at 504-599-9997 for a case evaluation to learn how we can help you today.
